After some time away I have rejoined the platform. I have a curious issue and it takes a keen intellect to figure it out. I had no idea there where so many opportunities in the marketplace. Also and hopefully I will reconnect with some friends and family. What a marvel idea. Sometimes people cross paths for a reason at the right time. It would be nice to follow that same line of thinking, some of my most memorable experiences have come that way as well. And drew you a smile. In all honesty it will be good to reach out to others. Now that’s been said it would be nice to hear from others that I haven’t seen for quite sometime. It would be really really nice have back what I once had. Hopefully Facebook can help facilitate that. The path forward will be much brighter. Simple things that don’t cost money. I did read something about the future once. Seems like a wonderful way to find out who is there for you. Thank you to those that have had my back. It means more to me than you know. I gave this app four stars because.. Well it means something to me and if you are curious you should ask me about it. Summer is almost here and it’s about time to enjoy it again. Finally!
Great way of reuniting and keeping in touch with friends and relatives. Do not need posts on news page of all the comments and likes of my friends' friends. Leads me to believe that a lot of privacy has been lost. Also too commercial now with all the ads inserted in main part. Also we used to be able to easily hide posts from friends without defriending permanently. In trying to find important posts from friends now it is much too time consuming to scroll past all the garbage. Used to love checking FB a couple times a day. Find myself looking at it less and less and much more discreet in personal comments. My comments haven't changed much. I do find when using phone or iPad app I have difficulty getting to settings to eliminate having their comments or likes of friends appear on my page. Ditto what I recently wrote. Since upgrading this app in Oct 2014, it has gone further downhill. When wanting to add a pic, I used to be able to go to an album in iPhoto, but now I can't. In other words, I would keep all the cute pics for birthdays in one album. Now I have to hunt for a picture. Also, there are ads covering up parts of articles and have trouble closing the ad so I can read the article. Some comments stay the same. Nice to have FB in phone especially when out or traveling. Don't like ads which are hard to close covering up articles. I'm one that is not interested and fast forward TV to skip commercials.
The real problem I and others have is that I don’t think real people are reviewing posts and profiles that I turn into your complaint reviewers. I only turn in profiles that I know are taking over other peoples profiles and writing posts that are fake. My cousins and my friends profiles were taken over by hackers and now they are posting illegitimate sales for coinbits and other ugly posts. I have reported it and others have as well, but nothing has been done. I get a message back saying there is nothing wrong with these posts. I have been harassed on others posts by illegitimate people whose profiles are always fake military men or at least that is what they present on their profiles and they always want to be friends with me and others. These profiles are obviously fake, but when I turn it in I get a message back saying they are okay and I can block them. Why should I be the one to do this? It does not help others when I block them, they just get me with another one of their fake profiles, so I am continuously blocking. These need to be researched, because they are definitely fake and it should be obvious if the reviewers were investigating complaints. I love FB, but have looked into other platforms, because of this. Also, removing posts that are very obviously not against community standards, like recipes or songs shared. This is overreach for a platform that encourages us to share things we enjoy.
Community Standards a joke and their technology to flag us
Facebook flagged a post that was a picture of my 5 yr old grandson eating candy because his shirt was off !? And honestly you couldn’t even see that much because it was half way up near his face because he was holding candy and was holding it up for me to see it and I took a picture of it and facebook said that I posted Nudity! Then about a week ago they flagged me again and i couldn’t even post to any of my groups because they said i went against their standards about safety because i posted a funny meme which i got it from facebook! It was on their site that i got it from to begin with and it was a stupid Joke nothing serious ! But you can’t even speak to a human being or let a human read the Joke to tell you that it was a joke? If you ask for a review they deny it every time and if you try to appeal it they tell you that you may not get chosen for a review to see if they were wrong! So somebody needs to look into facebooks technology or AI they’re using to check peoples post ! And Sometimes you don’t even comment anything wrong and it says you did when you try post a reply on fb. lol no wonder people are leaving this site. I can only hope another company will come out with a better social media site in the near future. Anyway I am a Christian i would never post nudity or anything to harm anyone. EVER !
For years I have been on Facebook and have had some issues with friends accounts and other accounts being hacked and no one on Facebook was there to help. Also, I had sold some things on Marketplace and was NEVER paid out for some of it. I tried multiple avenues to reach out to someone from Facebook to assist me in fixing all of these issues and NO ONE, I mean literally NOT A SINGLE ONE helped me nor was there an actual number to find to call that would help. What makes company's run smoothly is customer service lines and assistance, Facebook has neither! I find myself wondering why I’m still on this app if it’s not safe like that and the only reason I can find is that it’s to keep up with my family and friends that I can’t talk to everyday. But I think sometime soon, if they can’t have an actual customer service, that for the safety of myself and everyone else on this app it will need to be deleted. Lastly, I want to emphasize that I would not be saying this site is unsafe if they had an easily accessible customer service line. That’s literally all they need. That’s it. And they still haven’t done it? There is still not customer service. After all these years? Why? How many more lawsuits is it going to take for them to realize that maybe you could cut your legal fees if you just had some? My advice is, if you get on this app, be very cautious and aware of what is going on here.
Firstly, to get the big one out of the way. Several or at least one of “Meta’s” owners has been less than civil to say the least when it comes to having competition in the social media scene, you know like everyone else does whilst owning a business or platform. Rather than being original or not flat-out selling everyone’s personal information to stay on top, they do everything they can to remove their competitors from the equation entirely. We know what they’re doing, they know that we know, and it’s not subtle. On top of all of that, I disliked Facebook and Meta before all of this anyways. Not only had they been proven to have sold everyone’s information on several occasions, but the entire platform is riddled with 40+ year olds who get upset when they see someone else enjoying their life, or existence for that matter. You know who i’m talking about (i’m not saying it’s everyone, but it is absolutely most of the app’s users). The UI is extremely counterintuitive, designed to purposely make anything that could result in their users not making Meta every penny they can get, extremely difficult to do (deleting your account for example, which has taken me more than half an hour on some occasions due to their lack of user support) There are a lot more issues to talk about with this app, but these are the ones that speak to me the most and i have encountered personally
Absolute garbage. I never used social media before as I hate every concept of it but I am starting a business and needed to set up a business page so I can reach my customer base where they are. I made a brand new account and not even a day later it was disabled. I tried to see why as I had not done a single thing on the account accept make it. All it told me was that my profile didn’t meet the community guidelines. Not sure what part of my legal name or authentic email didn’t match their guidelines but I disagreed with the decision obviously. Almost two days later, my account was enabled. I go to log into the account and the minute I do, it gets disabled again. Same reasoning. I disagree again. This time, they permanently disable my account. Marketing is vital for a new business and I was prepared to dump a bunch of money into Facebook adds but I won’t be sending them a red hot penny. For extra kicks, I tried to make another account with a different email and wouldn’t you know, they track the IP address of your devices so they disabled my new account because it was associated with IP address of the account they disabled for absolutely no reason. I would love to hear some feedback from any developers but considering the fact that they have a 2.3 rating at the time of writing this, I would assume they could care less about the people that run into problems with their product.
I have had FB for 15 years. Today I open it and it didn’t work. I checked to see if there was a update and I try this very latest one. Next thing you know the app doesn’t open at all. I’m seeing all these reviews about not being able to edit last post, I have noticed that you can’t share a post to your story if it’s a video. There’s so many issues with this Facebook app these days. The developers have changed the flow and the ease of using the app. This is so frustrating. People are not able to change the passwords if they lost their phone numbers. So you lose your family history and memories when this happens. I’ve had one Facebook claim that I violated terms I went directly to the office to trying to fuel the matter because my whole marriage and children’s lives were in it and I was forever lost collected by the Facebook company. This is a terrible control that we’ve given a social element Needless to say my app will not open. Another issue is when you try to reset your password and it tells you to name people and your Facebook friends list many of us have thousands of people who are not genuinely our friends but people we’ve just connected with over time that we barely know the names of we just know that they speak to us. We need to create a back up system where we have phone number and email and a back up email with in Facebook like Google set up.
Coordinating like in share to mislead others about the popularity of something? 🤦🏾♂️ I’m not coordinated or miss leading or repeateding comments likes follow or nothing, This doesn’t make sense to me that my video been up September 24th & y’all Waited two months and a half almost 3 months to Block my video smh 🤦🏾♂️ This doesn’t make sense to me I have all rights just as well like everybody else as long as I’m not copyrights no one else video etc. It shouldn’t be a big deal as long as I’m the owner of my video and, I’m keep telling y’all, That’s my personal video I owned that video I recorded that when I was downtown a friend of mine was holding my phone why he recorded me…. And original video is still in my photos Savior……So whatever solution y’all trying to come up with I’m not going against none of your rules My video which is only speaking about It’sPositive (too many problems) is the title of the song in was going on around the world…That’s the title of my song so once again that’s my mainly video I own my own video…..Hope you guys understand where I’m coming from……I’m truly hurt because of this I cannot believe that you’re taking away something that I created
FB has become a utility. For some its the only way to commmunicate with friends and family. It’s not so easy for some to just leave. FB’s jail is a disaster, and I am sure it has been the cause of suicide over something someone wrote three years ago that was not against TOS anyway. People getting put in jail for “spam” for posting photos of birds they take daily, people in jail for verbiage taken WAY out of context by the antiquated algorithms. It can be absolutely heartbreaking when an elderly person is told they can’t communicate on Facebook because they posted a photo of an air freshener three years ago that FB thinks is something else. FB has no humans at the helm, as if they have no money for that, but Zucky is still expanding his empire. As soon as their is a platform that can take a FB friends list and find those same friends on that platform, FB will be dead. People are fed up. Put money into the algorithms for safety an user enjoyment. FB is stoned stupid when it comes to recognizing a fake Nigerian profile. OMG how stupid can your pseudocode be??? We can spot a fake Nigerian military man, widowed with two first names, usually a doctor, bbut FB is just too dang stupid to see it. When reported the profiles are not taken down. Right now there are thousands of fake celebrity profiles too. I am in the process of writing a blog about it. FB puts no money into user safety let alone enjoyment. It will be its detriment.
Problem with Facebook Live on iPhone SE 2nd generation
I have updated to the latest iPhone software, 17.0.2, but I still have this issue. With the recent Facebook app update I am no longer able to start the video using the “Go Live” button on the screen in landscape (as opposed to portrait) for Facebook Live videos. To share the whole story, it did work once, but then the video failed after a minute due to wi-fi signal issues. Before and after that tiny success, the video does not start in landscape mode. It does start with no difficulty in portrait mode, but none of the videos I wish to create and share are in that mode. I have used the landscape mode for years now, with no difficulties like this. Something has been changed, and it is not good for the user of the app. I make multiple videos per week, all in landscape mode. My entire set up for publishing videos, including my tripod, is based on publishing in this mode. If this was an intentional change, it is not appreciated. It is only taking away something which people use and want. It is not an improvement whatsoever. If it was accidental due to unexpected results, it needs to be fixed. Either way, please fix this issue. It may be just with iPhone SE 2nd generation devices. I am seeing other people with possibly other iPhone who do not have this issue.
I am so angry with Facebook!! I have gotten remarried and gone through all the steps to change my name legally and be rid of the last name of my EX. I haven’t changed my name on here in TEN YEARS but when I try to change my name now Y’all say I’ve already changed my name in the last 6 months!! No I have not!! You tell me I have to verify my identity so I send my new drivers license, my new social security card, my new voter registration card AND my marriage license!!!! And y’all have denied my proof 100 times in the last 2 months. While my friend changes her name to a fake name every other week with no issues!!! I have tried every option to speak with someone for help and hit dead ends everywhere. WHO DOES FACEBOOK ANSWER TO??? I have reported you to yourself, I’ve left reviews, I’ve scoured the help center, I’ve called the hotline, all to NO AVAIL!!!! Now here I am running around with my EX HUSBANDS NAME when I’ve done everything I’m supposed to to prove who I am and Facebook still refuses to hear me. HOW DO I FIX THIS FACEBOOK???? This is hands down the worst app I’ve ever owned and no matter all the terrible one star reviews, Facebook still thrives…. No matter the fact that Facebook censors everyone and refuses to acknowledge issues but yet YOU STILL THRIVE. I need help Facebook! How do I speak with someone who can actually help before I shut down my Facebook altogether again because this is ridiculous and a waste of time!
this is supposed to be a "Open opinion" no judgment for conversations or debates or just a fun app to share memes and stay connected with friends and family however you use it might I say may cause you to be "Blocked" for either several hours the first couple times of being "Warned" by Facebook if they take down one of your posts for whatever reason they pick (For no apparent reason) and you will start off with a few hours to a few days or even MONTHS and I believe some get their account deleted completely because of Facebook disagreements on peoples posts and you may think "Hm I don't post nothing bad" or "That won't happen to me" trust me there will be one post and you will share it and Facebooks very hypocritical self will take down your posts and even block you account meanwhile for Facebook being so "Wanna keep Facebook a safe place" | see a lot of disturbing and down right horrible things online (people dying, accidents, cartel videos of people getting chopped up, Drugs, fights) and just way more than you can ever think you'd see on a app that apparently wants to keep everyone safe why not worry about the posts that you should be worrying about I have been blocked for quite a while now and soon will be "Unblocked" for weeks finally and am now writing a review before deleting the app to warn people of facebooks ridiculous choices and rules on the app.
Facebook does not care about their people anymore there’s no one to talk to you or help you with issues and every time you ask for help there’s always scammers. When you try to reach out for help other you and steal your information. Facebook used to be the most amazing social network but now they don’t care about any of us. It’s really sad because I tried to reach out the other day and then I got call F are Callout my messenger and he would Facebook does not care about their people anymore there’s no one to talk to you or help you with issues and every time you ask for help there’s always scammers. When you try to reach out for help other people contact you and steal your information. Facebook used to be the most amazing social Netwerk but now they don’t care about any of us. It’s really sad cause I tried to reach out the other day and then I got called off for Call Out my messenger and you would think that Facebook would have some type of security but they don’t and I don’t even know who I’m messaging so hopefully somebody can come up with a new Netwerk or they can fix this one because people do not need to be taken advantage of.
I’m tired of the weird community standards. Folks can talk about how much they want to murder our former President and that’s perfectly fine because it’s part of FB’s political views, but I made a joke about a video that shows you how to get out of ropes if you’re ever kidnapped, saying that no kidnapper will ever tie you up like that and that no one is going to commit a felony without doing it right. Now I have a 30 day suspension because my comment went against community standards because apparently pointing out that no kidnapper will ever tie someone up like that is a poor reflection of humanity….but making realistic threats against former president Trump somehow isn’t nor is a guy telling me I deserve to be raped apparently. I hate this app. I have friends that live in China and this is the sort of censorship that they tell me they live with on a daily basis. I hope Elon Musk does buy Twitter. I’ll actually get an account and ditch FB. I’m tired of getting in trouble for doing nothing wrong or making an obvious joke. I flagged a guy that told me I deserved to be raped and FB sent me a message saying his comment didn’t violate community standards. I screen shot all of it and sent it to Fb…with no response. No worries. Our state paper has feelings about it, and I’m certain they’ll get a response from someone at FB. I hope national news picks it up because they deserve to be exposed for the trash they are.
I just un installed this. I’m hoping, I will see less pornographic content now. But, I’m not sure I will. It started in marketplace, then started appearing in ads under reels I was watching. I’ve reported them, to no avail. See, I’ve figured out how they are getting by with it. The ads for a split second, are clothing ads. Then, they switch to pornographic ads. I’m guessing just enough time passes that the robotic checks in their software, can’t pick up on it. I do find it a bit concerning, if people can do that, what else can they do on mass levels? This is not a 12 and up app. Not with porn all over in the ads. I’ve never seen this issue before until February of 2024 but, I did google it. It’s actually been an issue since 2013. I’m a guy, and it still angers me. If I wanted to look at porn, I wouldn’t be browsing Facebook. I’ve noticed a lot of people that used to be online, all the time no longer are. I’m wondering if this porn problem, is the reason why. I’ve talked to several of my friends about it. It seems like it’s targeting only those marked as male on their profiles. So, a pretty simple solution, would be for Facebook to spoof everyone as female in the software. They should be the ones doing all this research. Not me. I’m just hoping this works. Re installing the program. Then, I’m going through my friends list making sure I don’t have any bots as friends.
I continue to get violations for music rights when I’m using your app! Or Instagram which is also your app to forward my stories to Facebook and reels and I use the music button to add the music on my videos at this point it’s pretty annoying to have 30 opened violations waiting for review which also causing my account to not work correctly such as messaging people until you fix this issue for music rights when I’m using your app to add the music! Please fix your app because at this point tik tok is way better in my eyes and makes me wonder why any one still uses it! Espically with all the fake accounts and hackers trying to get into my account which was also verified forever until another issue which I’m currently dealing with trying to get someone from your app to respond and actually look at the photos of proof my payment went thru Apple and my bank showing payment received and to add back on the Meta verified check mark back onto my account. You might want to figure out a way customers can actually reach customer support thru a phone number because your options to get to anyone to help fix This is horrible luckily I’m not older with no computer knowledge because anyone that doesn’t have or know about computers or how to look for things in your app would have given up a long time ago to get their money back by now.
I’ll leave my old review done there from when Facebook messenger sprouted off in to a new app. However this app in the last 11 years or so of me using it has. 1.) targeted me with negative posts (I am bipolar and when they were running this experiment)I had no idea and ended up checking in to a facility. 2.) even with my political preference in my profile they still poured the other party down my throat every election year 3.) the people who use add space often don’t send out the product 4.) their intrusive way of advertising listens in to whatever we say, if you don’t believe me spend 15 min talking about a random thing close the app and then open it boom adds for thing. 5.) now the open chat for like random groups the general chat. Sooooooooooo annoying. I don’t want 99 notifications about people chatting I like most people has been cowed in to using Facebook! However this is the worst app ever. It's slow it's realitivlty ugly and you can't preform all the functions that you can on Facebook web as easily! Most people are running Facebook and the Facebook messenger! Taking down posts is near impossible you normally end up somehow back at the top of your news feed. And reporting posts takes so long you may as well keep seeing the male sexual organ on the screen! It is faster to go to Facebook from your safari browser! Facebook app developers do something
Never fixes issues/never listens to community about issues
The app is pretty pointless to use, I feel like they are trying to make the app more like Tik tok, where they force videos down your throat. It’s difficult to see what your friends have posted because all I get is suggested for you posts, which the amount is sometimes 12+ suggested for you posts. Another thing I have been waiting for them to fix is there is some sort of bug when my brightness is turned down low, especially at night I do watch certain videos and the brightness goes up on that video. What grinds my gears about the whole suggested for you posts should be in the section of Watch. Otherwise what is the point of having a separate page to watch stuff. Another annoyance is when I am watching reels and I want to view to comments I have to swap to a whole completely different app. If you already have the option to view the video have the option to be able to view the comments. It’s so inconsistent. Finally the market place it’s so inconsistent when trying to view postings for items. If I click on the image I should have the ability to either rotate the image from landscape to portrait. Then also have the ability to zoom in. But all I get is the ability to click on the exact same image to keep it that exact same size as it was, but now with black bars on top and bottom.
I’m giving Facebook five stars because it’s really the *only* social media platform that is good for writers. It allows us space to tell stories, with or without visual aid, and create communities and conversations around that writing. I hope that in the future Facebook helps amplify writers on its platform and takes notice that it really is a great asset to us (when we actually get reach). While I don’t like all of the political content or debate over that (nor do I appreciate AI censoring content, as it’s frequently off base), at its core Facebook as a community connector is a good thing. I hope they lean into that more. Very few of the other social media are there to connect us with people we actually know, not just influencers. I love to see *real* content from friends and family that is simple and a slice of life. You just don’t get that on other platforms like TikTok, which takes so much energy and skill to content create. Facebook is a simple tool to connect and I think they deserve more credit for that. Please continue to improve and dig into what makes you special, Facebook. I would hate to see it drowned in the cesspool that is modern media.
Better hope you never get hacked. My account was hacked because of some data leak. I’ve contacted support, submitted my ID and had it accepted at least 5 times. Ive gotten multiple “get back into account” emails and used the “get started” multiple times. It takes me to a page that says “3 of your posts go against our standards” and wont let me do anything else. Support is completely useless. Every email and link i have been sent takes me to that same page. They say they will have a specialist review my case and email me and il get an automated email that from support that takes me TO THE SAME VIOLATION PAGE! Im done with this loop of contacting support, sending the id, getting an email link that takes me to the violations. And when i tell them this doesnt work they close the chat in my face. 10 times i went through this process only to get blocked from support because ive become frustrated doing this same process over and over and getting hung up on. None of them speak english, and theyre rude unhelpful morons, I need the violations removed in order to use the account but your support is unable to comprehend this so apparently im just screwed. Ive tried every way to talk to someone and email a different support branch and get this fixed but apparently all i have access to is a bunch of foreigner morons that dont care enough to help you out awesome job guys
Over the last year or two, this app has gotten worse and worse. 1) Almost 100% of the time, it does NOT accept any input emoji (thumbs up, smiley, sad, etc). 2) When you open up your notifications, and then close them, they USED TO no longe be highlighted, as if they haven’t been read, but over the last about year, that NEVER happens. You have to refresh the app to get the notifications to display that they have been read already. 3) When you reply to a post, it doesn’t show up without refreshing the app. 4) When you reply to a post, the reading pane goes completely wonky - it’s difficult to describe what it does, but you can’t even read the comments because it won’t scroll. 5) When you reply, more often than not, it won’t even let you reply. 6) When you reply, most of the time, it won’t even display a reply section, but let’s you type as if you are replying. 7) When you reply, if you try to reread the OP, your reply disappears, which requires you to close the app and reopen it and start all over again with your reply, IF it even lets you reply like stated in 4, 5, and 6 above. Needless to say, the app is disgustingly bad over the last year or so, let alone the propensity of the company to push a political narrative on people while shadow banning, or outright banning, people who DARE to question the extreme liberal ideology the company pushes on people!
I hate the fact that I can’t delete my old profiles. My phone number changed a couple of times and I lost my passwords (and can’t retrieve my password because my phone number changed. A cycle that goes nowhere). Without either of these I don’t have access to my own account to delete it. One of my two accounts I don’t have access to has many old pictures and personal videos I want to keep private and not allow anyone access to anymore for personal reasons. But I can’t. Anyone has access to them now and there’s nothing I can do to stop it. I tried all their alternative ways to access my account. I did what was asked but was met with no response on FB’s side. So now FB has THAT personal information I submitted because they asked for it as the alternative way to access my account as well. But they didn’t respond. They just kept my information with that too. And I can’t get that information back either. I should be able to delete an old account to protect my privacy and feel safe. Facebook doesn’t allow this. Maybe they’re trying to keep their # of profiles up to keep looking attractive to the companies they do business with, so they make it hard or impossible to delete your own profile when necessary and they keep you locked out of it. This is unethical for FB to do. Very disappointing. I used to enjoy this app/SM site.

FACEBOOK IS THE MOST HYPOCRITICAL APP AND POSSIBLY THE WORST SOCIAL MEDIA APPS PERIOD this is supposed to be a "Open opinion" no judgment for conversations or debates or just a fun app to share memes and stay connected with friends and family however you use it might I say may cause you to be "Blocked" for either several hours the first couple times of being "Warned" by Facebook if they take down one of your posts for whatever reason they pick (For no apparent reason) and you will start off with a few hours to a few days or even MONTHS and I believe some get their account deleted completely because of Facebook disagreements on peoples posts and you may think "Hm I don't post nothing bad" or "That won't happen to me" trust me there will be one post and you will share it and Facebooks very hypocritical self will take down your posts and even block you account meanwhile for Facebook being so "Wanna keep Facebook a safe place" | see a lot of disturbing and down right horrible things online (people dying, accidents, cartel videos of people getting chopped up, Drugs, fights) and just way more than you can ever think you'd see on a app that apparently wants to keep everyone safe why not worry about the posts that you should be worrying about I have been blocked for quite a while now and soon will be "Unblocked" for weeks finally and am now writing a review before deleting this app.
Facebook used to be amazing. Now it’s mostly ads. They tried to create an algorithm where you have visibility of the same group of people over and over, it’s VERY boring. Their reels platform was actually getting pretty cool because they paid content creators to come over, but then when things started going well, they stopped paying them. They refused to ever monetize my account because I posted a video with a watermark, 15 videos back. Their appeal process is horrible and they have literally zero customer service. They “shadow ban” you if you post a link or share a news story so no one actually has visibility unless they search for it on my page. They grossly limit freedom of speech, esp for LGBTQ and other minority groups. They layered in so many things it got confusing, messenger is it’s own app, but reels is not, making reels difficult to share. Their system in wonky and hard to maneuver through, you get used to it, but the whole time your think “why?”. It has some value for older people to stay in touch, that’s the only good thing I can say. Like an abandoned amusement park, it used to be fun, but now it’s rusty and outdated.
I am very conservative minded. Facebook seems to be very liberal. I don’t like being put in Facebook jail for my views. I don’t do things to harm others just use my viewpoint to express my way of thinking which, again I say is conservative. Our America WAS conservative, God fearing, which made her what she was, a great nation that was revered by other nations. Since liberal thinking has taken over we have what we have in America. Rioting, gun violence (by the way, a gun on its own never shot anyone) the undisciplined “I don’t have to work for what I want, I’ll just take what I want at gunpoint” attitude that has been promoted by the liberal thinkers has taken over. Our public schools have indoctrinated instead of teaching. It would be great if Facebook would give a thought to how your broad coverage affects thinking (and maybe that is already your goal, but in a liberal way). You have provided a means by which people can connect or perhaps reconnect after losing track of people from their past. Not knowing your view of God limits my understanding of why your rules or ways of doing are what they are. I enjoy the provided manner to connect with people miles away that I may not have otherwise found. God’s ways are not man’s way but we all will be held accountable for our actions.
You just got a shake your head about this so-called social media app. And the fact that your market place has become a playground for scam artist, crooks and well. I got a few other choice words, but I’ll hold my tongue anytime you post something on marketplace now, and it seems to be the majority or women out of the 500 or so request for a phone number every time I post an item it’s a woman with no profile just want the phone number. I don’t know what they use them for. I heard it’s to do some kind of Google coding or something how to use it to make money somehow and Facebook does nothing about it. Good job Facebook security y’all are more concerned about somebody posted something religious. animal cruelty, a major issue shown on Facebook for people to laugh at and the actors Guild must come on here and watch all the fake plays that people put on about cheating in just crazy mentally disturbed stuff which I mainly concerned about getting people‘s info so you can use it for whatever purposes you deem fit that’s why y’all are getting sued for selling peoples information and letting everybody under the moon get access to it. It looks like you’ll eventually goes away of my space. My space had a good idea with the music. I don’t know what happened to them, but I’ll give it a few more years and Facebook will be gone and I won’t miss him that’s for sure
I believe that Facebook Pages Manager may be compromised. I downloaded it to try and manage my business pages a little easier and was informed later that day that a page which is not active and is unpublished so not visible to the public had posted something violating community standards concerning “child sexual exploitation”. I was horrified! I am a portrait photographer and there was an image on a separate page of a mother and her son, but it was not the page that was flagged. I believe I was hacked. I asked for a review and was told they might not have the manpower to do that. I did not have an opportunity to defend myself or explain that I believe I was hacked. Needless to say, I lost my personal account as well as a successful business page. I went about a month before I tried setting up a new account yesterday. I only set it up to access an educational Facebook group pertaining to my business and to shop on marketplace. The only information I put up were a profile picture and a cover photo and joined that group. This morning I messaged someone on Marketplace about a rocking chair they had listed being kid size. They asked me to confirm my phone number and I don’t know if it’s been flagged from my last account, but as soon as I did, I immediately received a suspended message. Talk about zero context. I don’t think I’ll try again. Bye bye Facebook.
Facebook fact-checkers: ALL of you are criminals!!!! You will never be able to walk down the street alone again once people find out what you’ve been doin. How do you sleep with your head on that pillow at night? Do you sleep? Do you cry for the thousands of voices who’ve been silenced tryin to protect their families with vital information on the vaccines? Do you feel anything? I hope and I honestly do believe that GOD is in charge here now.. he’s gonna show the people who you all really are. How deranged and sick you are for allowing this censorship to continue. I would say to put my Facebook page back on, but I don’t really care anymore. You’ve lost my trust and my respect. To whoever reads this, you better ask yourself right now if you having a job as a Facebook fact-checker was worth the pain you’re about to experience when everyone finds out what you’ve done. Sleep well.. I know I will, knowing God will take care of each and every one of you unless you start speaking out for the people. You’re cruel and heartless if you don’t. You have to live with that... choose wisely, God is Watchin.
FB is how I keep connected with all sorts of people I had lost contact with, but I’m getting fed up. The algorithms that decide what I see are awful and I miss I lot. I usually switch to the Recent view which does a better job, but still filters, but with every new release that gets more cumbersome to get to. Here’s an example: yesterday was my birthday, so I figured I’d see my birthday wishes at or near the top this morning. I saw several ads and then a ton of other stuff. I never did find them in my feed — I had to go to notifications and tapped on one of the notifications telling me I got a birthday wish which took me to my greetings. I’m sorry, but even if they weren’t birthday wishes, shouldn’t I be immediately seeing posts that just happened yesterday? One of my greetings had an avatar in it and a link for me to follow if I want to make an avatar too. I followed it and it said my app is out of date (which is strange since I have auto-update set on apps) and took me to the App Store were it did *not* show any updates to be installed. I deleted the app and re-installed it, thinking that should fix it, but it didn’t. Since FB has no customer support (I guess they think they’re perfect so they don’t need it) there’s nothing to do. I can try to make an avatar on another device and hope it shows up on my iPad, but that’s it.
I use Facebook primarily for the market place, which by itself is an awesome platform. It’s much more user friendly and less fee driven than Etsy. That is where the good ends I’m afraid. The app and messenger sidecar constantly have issues updating, showing correct information, presenting errors, not sharing between devices, and show “unread” messages. The updating issues stem from updated listing items. Items on discount don’t always show to the public. I get messages that there are offers on items or that an item has sold and marketplace won’t let me connect to those messages. You have to really really dig to find them. There isn’t a way to filter unread messages and a whole host of notifications give you an unread message notification. If I contact someone about their item and they sell it to someone else or mark it pending I get a message notification but unless I find the exact conversation, that someone sold an item on, it remains in the corner. It can be hard to keep up with actual buyers when the notifications are just red herrings most of the time. For the amount of money Facebook makes and hopefully a whole team of well payed programmers it employees it is ridiculous the amount of issues on the app. Don’t even get my started on the ipad version, you can’t even use it in tandem with your commerce account.
Stay away; buggy app and support is impossible to find
Facebook doesn’t care about its customers, other than counting them in an active users statistic. Their faulty AI algorithm (with Zuckerberg at the helm of the company, it’s not at all surprising the algorithm is faulty!) thinks it detected a login from a new device for my account. I’m given only one option to resolve the problem, to login from a device that I’ve previously used for Facebook. Problem is, when I try to login with any device that I’ve previously used, I get the same message. There’s no apparent way to prove I’m the real owner of the account. Lots of forum searches have reinforced that there is no way past this; I’m locked out of my own account with no way back in. I could start a new account, but that wouldn’t have my previous contacts or content. Here’s the really great part (sarcasm alert)… Facebook makes it nearly impossible to get support. They don’t have a support phone number or chat web page where you can ask questions; they only display static content. Apparently they don’t want to incur the cost of helping users fix the problems that their lousy product designers create. Some forums seem to imply that minimal support is available once logged in, but since I can’t log in, I can’t attest to that. When people warn of the dangers of AI, Facebook engineers are one group they should highlight!
This app gets worse and worse. I sell on Marketplace regularly. FB actually has a pretty reasonable selling fee of 5%, but the app is constantly getting updates that make it unreliable and obnoxious. Listings get flagged by bots as inappropriate and there is no human to review and correct. Literally had a posting of Play-do flagged as “services”. I didn’t offer to teach the kid to sculpt. Had a garden gnome set flagged as “adult content” but I see hilariously inappropriate adult content on my suggested items to purchase regularly. If they do approve the listing, if you have to make an edit or delete and relist it is flagged again as inappropriate and is a mark against you as if you are a repeat offender… when there was NO offense. With the latest downgrade, excuse me, update 🙄… if you edit a listing your ENTIRE description disappears. It is auto filling in color and material… incorrectly I might add, it gets hung up as if you are still typing when you click to the next page so you cannot complete the listing without returning to the first page and clicking through the fields again… which have repopulated the incorrect information on color and material you have already removed once. STOP messing up the app. Get HUMANS that people can contact when they have an issue. When something isn’t broke, don’t fix it.
Notifications don’t work. Quite often the notifications are for things that are days or weeks old, and no longer relevant. The search function does not work. The search function only ever gives you results that you don’t want. If there is a specific post that you know exists, the search function will find everything except for that. If you want to search for a specific person, you will get 100 people with that name, with no way to narrow it down to the person that you want. Don’t even try to contact technical support or customer service. Most likely, they won’t answer at all. If they do respond, they will send a canned response saying the problem is solved, even though nothing has changed. They keep adding new features that don’t work, and that no one asked for. Meanwhile, the core functions get worse with each new gimmick. People I know personally, and would like to interact with, I don’t see their posts. People I’ve never met, and can hardly remember why we are friends, I see all their posts whether I want to or not. I could go on for days about all the things wrong with Facebook. It is the app I use most on any given day because I’m required to use it for my work. I will by so happy when Facebook finally dies and is replaced by something that actually works the way Facebook claims to work.
I have been with Facebook for a long time and every since I got my invite to the bonus program Facebook have been making me want to give up on them my account has been hacked a lot a lot I have been gettin violation and restriction left and right my account was just permanently restricted from payment because of fraud which at the time my account was hacked my other accounts took the same blow and I just started back using my old account hoping to get and invite to the bonus program on it they have restricted for 90days from earning from reels I was jus able to start back making then this month and now they have restricted me again from earning for content this is mine or I published or had a hand in doin but other people said they got the same thing happen to them and contacted Facebook about it and it was fixed well so did I and haven’t heard nothing back from them so idk but to top it all off I have been in the bonus program since December and I still have yet to get any of my payouts sent to me I don’t know what else to do I’m seriously thinking about deleting my pages and letting Facebook go cause it’s a problem after another and I’m not getting no type of help from Facebook and my issues
I’m a business & legal professional who woke up while a business trip to my account being suspended due to improper content. I NEVER share anything inappropriate online or in real life. My life is dedicated to share informational, educational, spiritual, and motivational content. Many of my clients and friends are connected to me through this platform. I can’t get help! I’m completely shut out the system for something I never posted and never will! I don’t even know what the post was! However, there is no help or guidance. You can only appeal something that I have no clue as to what it is. People share horrible, sexual, racist, demeaning, belittling, predatory content all the time and even make fake pages to steal from people, but I never have and never will do any of these things yet my account is suspended. My life is dedicated to helping people protect their intellectual property, build businesses, and and be self sufficient. I share my Christian journey and life as a single-parent. I’m a positive African-American woman with international education and experiences. I am appalled at what I’m going through with facebook and there is no recourse for me. I can’t even access the Help Center! This impacts so many areas of my life and business for reasons I have no knowledge of. Do better facebook!!!! SMH
I’ve been very disappointed with the Facebook App lately ( the past few years ). I’ve had and used the app for a very long time. About 4 years ago I became a reseller of vintage items antique items and jewelry… so of course I wanted to try to sell on Facebook Market Place. It was going good at first but then I noticed my listings were messing up on their own. That’s when most of the problems I have with the Facebook App started. Market Place takes a percentage of our sales when an item is shipped, so for there to be SO many issues with this App is utterly ridiculous. I’m very disappointed. I reach out to customer support a lot and there’s usually no response or they just say they’ll look into it… which nothing changes and nothing is fixed - the problems are still there. I just have to take it that no one did anything about the issues I’ve been reporting. I can’t even put the information in my listings to make sure potential customers can find my listings through the search option! I really wish Facebook would take care of their Marketplace better - they are making a lot of money off of us resellers so I know they have the man power or at the very least they could hire the man power to do so.
October, 2022 Update: Once again, the Facebook app developers have totally ruined the app! Your developers and testers (if you have any) obviously do not use the app because if you did, you would immediately see the issues you are creating! For instance, now if I share a post or video, and a friend comments on my shared post and I click on “Comments” to view my it, the app takes me to the comments on the original post, not my post’s comments. Ridiculous!! The only way to view comments from my friends is to go to my profile and scroll to my post. QUIT MESSING WITH THE APP!! Oh…. And I don’t use your app to see random ads and “recommended” posts from people I don’t know. But now, that is all I see with just a few random posts from my friends sprinkled in. Time for someone else to create a social networking app that is actually usable and kick FB to the curb. REALLY, Facebook?? Since your new update, I now only see 22 posts in the timeline. Many of these I have already seen and a few are useless ads. If I want/need to scroll back to find a post (and can’t remember who posted it), I no longer can. Once again proving that Developers aren’t users or they don’t listen to what their CUSTOMERS want. Between you limiting what I can and can’t see, and listening into my conversations and search history, you’re seeming more and more like BIG BROTHER.
When I first made a Facebook account Facebook was actually away to reconnect with family and even classmates. As time moved forward Facebook became a place that people began making the most hilariously funny skits. Family and friends being able to laugh and communicate and talk about a photo of memories of happy times. Around 2019 Facebook became a cesspool of HATE AND BIGOTRY. 2023 all the funny content and family social interaction is now gone. All I see is reminders of racism that’s become so bad it is just disturbing. I don’t watch the News for a reason. I don’t like disturbing content. Now all down my time line is hate hate and more hate. What’s worse is now if Facebook post a story and you post and if you don’t agree with someone or you don’t agree how the story ended (news media coverage of excessive police force, bullying, entitlement) it then creates an extreme toxic environment. I just slowly began deleting friends and family and kept begging Facebook to please stop putting racist content on my timeline. It’s gotten to the point that I only use Facebook to connect my games to for saving purposes. Facebook has officially become Hatebook. It’s too much hate in the world already. I once used to go to Facebook to just laugh at the skits and now Facebook causes me anxiety because I don’t need to constantly be reminded of how horrible the world has become.
It has gotten so bad with monitoring which I can understand within reason but I have been on there for 1 million years I never threaten … I stay out of arguments and I stay away from anything that Facebook has to offer because I have already been scammed a number of times they monitor you but they don’t monitor the number of people that are hacking other peoples accounts. That’s just one issue the issue is really go on… Now it’s a very leftist communist type of platform that you can only wish people happy birthday a happy anniversary congratulations my deepest sympathy an engagement just simple things things like that. Get into politics or controversial issues they are censoring you and if they don’t like what you say or do or watch … they will extra watch everything you do… just so they can punish you until you behave accordingly to Facebook and their rules. They were never this bad if you get the app you’ll see for yourself but it’s very disappointing it’s an end to an era with Facebook for me. And I’m glad. They are very sick people and they have nothing but sick of people running it. Yes it’s an opinion but it’s also been my experience. If you do join I wish you all the luck you’re gonna need it. Just behave the way they want you to and you shouldn’t have a problem …. At least for a while. 🙄🙄🙄
Violation of privacy. Delete app and reinstall to see
Facebook is taking more information than just the app utilization. Facebook is going through your entire phone, web browsing, call logs, the Porn you watch on safari last week, the picture of your åss you took for your man or woman. It's stats that they need permission because of the new iOS yet you have no option to disagree with Facebook tracking, because you will be prompted every 5 seconds, which you will have to close the app and open again for a next 5 seconds. Instagram asking for the same thing too. If you notice, the continue button to agree is right where your home button is so it's easy to accidentally press. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!NNNNOW TELL ME IF THIS ISN'T ROBBERY ?????? See I miss Steve;-( Steve would never let Apple sell Instagram, would never allow other parties to rip off my information and so forth. Notice Apple doesn't let you like or dislike a comment on a app review, because Apple is becoming part of the problem. You notice they're cutting out SIM cards? Because then they really own your every move on your phone and constantly listen to your background, going through your photo albums. Why you think you will never see a picture reminder of your nudity??? Because they looked at it. It's not all Ai pulling this info.
Roughly 2yrs ago, I had a truck I needed to sell. I posted it on marketplace and the next day I came down with covid. I was super sick the first 3 days. I stayed in bed and did not care about my phone nor what was going on with it. During these 3 days, someone, an older lady, liked the truck and messaged me multiple times during this sick period. For whatever reason, since I didn’t answer back fast enough, I guess, so she marked me as a scam. If you look at my stars and how many things I had sold on marketplace, it is obvious, I don’t scam anyone nor have. She apologize and said she would do what she could to get my marketplace back. I have requested a review multiple times to no avail. Please take a look at the situation. Being blocked from selling has put a huge damper on my yearly funds. Still selling on there but through someone. I had like 40-50 high marks from many people I have sold to. Again, please take a look, I’ve been on here since 2009 and have been in the same home town since. It wouldn’t take long and you will notice, I am just a normal seller, just like anyone else on marketplace. When y’all get a moment. Thanks. Been staying off fb all this year for this reason. It was taken away with some random person that never had bought a things on marketplace and it was pretty obvious to me. Should be for y’all too. :-)
Keep switching everything up. Make it hard to manage.
Does Facebook know how hard it is to keep up with changing format and rules? Why is it so hard to find info on how to do stuff (like add an Administrator?) Why do I so often get notices like “Whoops, …try again later”? I even got those messages when placing ads, kept trying again only to find each placement actually worked — and then voila I had a rather expensive ad campaign going — and couldn’t get any refund even tho I sent in screen shots showing that Facebook said the promotion didn’t work and to retry. Why isn’t there a help desk or even a bot to chat with? How about a customer service center? Why doesn’t Facebook go after all those scammers that contact me to say I’ve broken copyright rules and that my account will be shut down? Sometimes I get one every two weeks. (A, I haven’t broken any such rules; B, I don’t think Facebook is going to use an email or website to contact me that isn’t a Facebook address; and, C, it still alarms me and others in my organization). And what about all those folks that now add comments to posts that are really adversing a product. I report them and they continue to show up. And the ads….gosh there are just too many.
My daughter has had her account since she was 13. She is now 28. Her account was hacked and stolen. The thief even changed her email. She was sent a warning email that asked her if she made the change. She said she didn’t make the change but still can’t log into her old account. The thief changed her public photo with one of my 2 year old granddaughter. So many private photos are in the hands of a criminal and the billion dollar company does nothing!! I can’t post my political or medical opinions without being “spanked”. I’m so disappointed in this app. I used to love Facebook but am completely disappointed in what it has become. My opinion hurts no one. I’m kind to everyone. My friends can decide to block me if they don’t like what I post. I don’t need Facebook deciding what is true and what is not. If I could give it zero stars, I would. Facebook can hide all political posts they don’t like but let thieves and traffickers steal accounts and use them for whatever evil purposes. Our employers might think the stolen accounts are legitimate. Facebook needs to use all the money it makes to help legitimate honest people instead of paying communists companies to stalk honest people, filter our posts, hide them and decide which posts of our friends we are allowed to see. Narcissistic people run this company.
What a sad state Zuckerberg has lead Meta/FB into. I considered deleting this app about 3 yrs ago when the ads started to overtake my feed. However I thought it was a minor annoyance that I could work/edit to help eliminate through time and changes in my personal settings. Now I will delete my FB, bc I’m so annoyed with the CEOs behavior. I feel there’s plenty of room in the social media world for other apps that might compete. Yet Zuckerberg lobbied hard to bring help Congress build a case to ban Tiktok. This took it too far for me. Seriously, FB has many data privacy issues and is a huge risk for US citizens and our government security. It’s even had a breach where Russia tried to manipulate our Presidential elections. Congress should get real about who’s really violating the US’s privacy and stop lying to manipulate the narrative all for your personal interest. If it’s data insecurity, Tiktok has secured our data better than any current US application. So that can’t be the problem. We (U.S. citizens) are tired of dealing with a Congress that operates under a misguided, hypocritical agenda, and is one that can be bought by corrupt, spoiled tech CEOs. What we can thank Zuckerberg for is opening our eyes & showing us who not to vote for as our representatives. Good luck Zuckerberg. Maybe losing your user base/revenue will now give you something to really cry over.

Facebook's blatant disregard for user privacy is nothing short of appalling. It's clear that the platform's primary concern is not the well-being of its users, but rather the financial gains it can reap from their personal data. Time and time again, Facebook has demonstrated its willingness to exploit users' information for its own benefit, with little regard for the potential harm this can cause. The company's repeated failures to adequately protect user data have led to countless privacy breaches and data leaks, leaving users vulnerable to identity theft, cybercrime, and other serious threats. Moreover, Facebook's opaque and convoluted privacy policies make it nearly impossible for users to understand what information the company is collecting, how it's being used, and who it's being shared with. This lack of transparency is unacceptable, and it leaves users feeling helpless and exposed. To make matters worse, Facebook has shown little remorse for its actions, and has done little to rectify the damage it has caused. The company's half-hearted attempts at addressing privacy concerns feel more like lip service than a genuine effort to do better. Overall, if you value your privacy and security, it's best to steer clear of Facebook. The platform's track record when it comes to protecting user data is abysmal, and it's clear that the company has no intention of changing its ways.
Delete IG but jail FB users and all for profit research
FB is Absolute garbage and I am so glad I left it years ago. The business suite is way too complicated now that I’ve been gone so long and I don’t even want to be on it anymore because I got my whole Instagram deleted of 11 years for somebody using it and a couple flagged violations done by a computer that are not fair by any means when people are constantly bullying people insulting people and posting misinformation and all they get is jailed or warned on Facebook but you people think it’s OK to delete somebody’s entire Instagram and not give it back to them especially when they have a business Facebook page and a business Instagram page? We’re all about power and control and making money off of research and I will no longer use any of your websites I’d rather use TikTok. That’s pretty sad. I was getting 5 to 10,000 on my rules and I only just began I had just switched to a professional account and you deleted my entire account. Appealed it 50 times and you did nothing I talk to a woman in India who promised she could help me and I never got any help so thank you for being totally useless and being nothing more than free photo storage for all these years. Peace. Every other platform is better than Facebook and nobody Young as using Facebook you will shortly die out and fizzle.
I’ve had the same FB account for well over 12 years and never had a single community guideline violation. I got hacked 4 days ago and they removed my original email address and phone number and changed my name and photo to a “well known public figure” and also set up a two step authorization with a physical security key so i literally had no way of accessing my account. I followed the necessary steps listed in the “help center” and even uploaded my photo ID and I still could not get into my account. I finally got approved into my account last night only to find out it was suspended due to multiple community guideline violations in regards to the “public figure”. I appealed that but woke up to an email this morning stating my account has been permanently disabled. Throughout this whole process I wasn’t given an opportunity to explain to a human about the situation. You’d think they’d be able to look at the account activity and see that all this happened within a 4 day span. Now I am out of YEARS of photos, friends, memories, and messages because of facebooks lack of a human customer support team. I normally wouldn’t care but a lot of those pictures and messages from deceased family and friends are priceless. If you’re reading this, change your password often and be sure to back up all photos.
